I've had one post titled Card Love on this blog. It was a card I found in a friend's collection and it had been treated like a card that had been loved. To me, then, it was worthy of a blog feature.
In addition to that, I would like you to read the comments left for this post as well. The subject of the card was also loved and in a real sense. So for those who left comments, I thank you. I did not know much about the man featured, but you can see that he touched people's lives during his own life.
The premise for the contest then is simple. In the spirit of the season (Valentine's Day and all that), express a card (or cards) that you love or have loved.
Love can mean when you look at the card it takes you to a happy place.
Love can mean that the card was carried in your wallet for 850 years.
Love can mean many other things. How you interpret it is up to you.
To enter the contest, post on your blog with the subject "Card Love" and give a normal length post for you about it. Then leave a link on any post here.
If you don't have a blog, just send me an e-mail with "Card Love" as the subject.
At the end of the period of the contest (let's give until 11:59 pm PST February 14 for now), I will present a list of the links and e-mails with the material and then you, the readers, will determine the winners through voting in the poll.
The top two vote getters will receive a Strat-o-matic Computer game and a free spot in my first group break (and some other things that I dig up depending on the preferences of the winners).
Depending on the number of entries, the prize pool will increase.
So, let's show some love out there!...for cards or the card subjects.
